1. Rose blossom hydrolate
The active ingredients of the Damask rose blossoms are obtained from the steam distillation of organically grown roses. The flowers are picked early in the morning as this is the time when the oil content of the flowers is at its highest. Rose blossom hydrolate is known for its calming and harmonizing effect.
2. Ferment – Vegan (!) lactic acid bacteria
Lactic acid bacteria preserve the product and cause a significant improvement in skin moisture. For its preserving properties, the probiotic active ingredient uses the principle of fermentation, as we know it from the production of sauerkraut or kimchi. Although the word milk is in the name, our lactic acid bacteria have nothing to do with milk.
Many natural cosmetic products are preserved with alcohol. We really wanted to avoid this as alcohol liquefies the skin barrier. This allows more moisture to escape from the skin. However, we want to achieve exactly the opposite with this product: namely to store water in the skin. Thanks to the innovative active ingredient, we have succeeded.
Quality: organic, made from coconut oil
Glycerine provides the skin with long-lasting and intensive moisture and acts within the entire top layer of the skin. It promotes skin elasticity and has a barrier-protecting effect. Glycerin is one of the most powerful hydrating ingredients and is essential in a moisturizing cream or serum.
Glycerin is often criticized for being drying. This statement is only valid when used in extremely high concentrations, which is rarely if ever used in cosmetics. Then the glycerin would release the water bound from the skin into the air instead of keeping it in the skin. This is not the case with a lower application concentration - we use 4 percent.
4. Vegetable hyaluronic acid
Quality: non-GMO, from grain
Hyaluronic acid effectively binds moisture to your skin and ensures resilience and elasticity. This demonstrably improves skin moisture levels. Hyaluronic acid also protects and regenerates the skin barrier. We use high-molecular hyaluronic acid.
out of conviction
L-arginine, at four percent, is a natural component of the skin's own moisture retention system. This system is called the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). L-arginine helps the skin retain water by preventing premature evaporation.
On the left you will find the ingredients as we know them colloquially and on the right according to the INCI, the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients.

Good to know
*Citronellol and geraniol are natural components of rose petal hydrolate Relevant for people with allergies.
Hydrolates are obtained from flowers and parts of plants. They combine the concentrated power of the plants and, in addition to the fragrance, have various positive and negative effects. People with intolerance to certain plants often also react to the corresponding hydrosols. A single hydrolat consists of up to 200 chemical components - some of which can have an allergenic effect. For this reason, 26 allergenic components have been defined by the EU. These must always be shown separately in the overview of the ingredients (INCI) and let people with allergies know that certain products should be avoided.
